9780310330523: The Entitlement Cure: Finding Success in Doing Hard Things the Right Way

Today we live in a culture that says, “Life should be easy and work well.” This attitude, called entitlement, influences our most important institutions: family, business, church, and government. Its devastating effects contribute to relational problems, work ethic issues, and emotional struggles.

It comes down to this: People are not getting to where they want to go, because they don’t know how to do life the hard way. Entitlement keeps them from tackling challenges and finding success.

But whether readers are struggling with their own sense of entitlement or dealing with someone who acts entitled, The Entitlement Cure will equip them to turn away from a life of mediocrity to a life of engagement, satisfaction, and joy.

Drawing from his experience as a counselor and leadership consultant, renowned psychologist and New York Times bestselling author Dr. John Townsend explores strategies for fighting entitlement, such as:

  • Take a meaningful risk every week
  • Find ways to minimize regret
  • Grasp the value of keeping inconvenient commitments
  • Understand why saying “I don’t know” is the first step toward success.

In a culture that encourages shortcuts and irresponsibility, The Entitlement Cure provides principles and skills to help you both navigate life with those around you who have an entitlement mindset and identify areas in your own life where you are stuck in “easy way” living. Dr. Townsend will show you how to become successful, resolve obstacles in life, and help those around you.

Ultimately, The Entitlement Cure provides practical tools for a life of success that works for anyone.

Review:

The growing entitlement mentality in this country is completely toxic, slowly eating away at our spirits like acid. I’ve said for years that if you want to win, you’ve got to take responsibility. You’ve got to leave the cave, kill something, and then you can drag it home! Personal responsibility may be the hard way, but it’s the only way. (Dave Ramsey, New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio show host)

The Entitlement Cure is a powerful book that gives people a true roadmap to success. If you want a better life, starting right now, buy this book. (Daniel G. Amen, MD, founder, Amen Clinics, author of Change Your Brain, Change Your Life)

Dr. John Townsend has written a helpful and encouraging book to help us deal with the issue of entitlement, whether we see it in others or in ourselves. Overcoming this mindset isn’t easy. It requires discipline, honesty, and responsibility. That’s the hard way, but it’s the only way worth taking. (Jim Daly, President ― Focus on the Family)

There are so many real-life examples based on John’s experience and expertise that reinforce why the hard way is the best way and God’s intended way for our success. This is more than a book to read, it’s an engaging conversation with a “friendly” expert. (Gary Daichendt, former executive vice president, Cisco Systems)

Buying and reading The Entitlement Cure should be one of the easiest decisions you ever make. Why? Because we all need John Townsend’s life-giving message. Don’t miss out on this compelling and immensely practical book. You will love The Entitlement Cure! (Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott, authors of)

There are no shortcuts to anywhere worth getting to. The Entitlement Cure is full of wisdom, truth, empowerment, and principles that will help you and those around you actually achieve success. I’ve been waiting for this book and could not put it down. It is a new word for our generation. (Christine Caine, founder, The A21 Campaign)

There is no such thing as “the easy button,” but my friend John Townsend delivers real remedies to today’s entitlement mentality. The Entitlement Cure is a game changer. (Dr. Kevin Leman, New York Times bestselling author of The Birth Order Book and The Way of the Shepherd)

Dr. John Townsend is one of the leading psychologists in the world today, and his new book, The Entitlement Cure, will help hundreds of thousands of readers. He describes the hard way as developing the habit of doing what is best, rather than what is most comfortable, to accomplish worthwhile outcomes. In reality, the hard way actually becomes the easiest way to achieve success and love. I highly endorse this book. (Paul Meier, MD, founder of the national chain of Meier Clinics)

The only place where “success” comes before “work” is in the dictionary. Cutting corners is a shortcut to losing --- there is no free lunch. John has hit on one of the most pressing problems facing families, businesses, and society. We have a rising culture of entitlement. The Entitlement Cure is a straightforward illustration and guide to curing this epidemic. (C. Kemmons Wilson Jr., founding family of Holiday Inns)

Dr. John Townsend has addressed a devastating result of the disappearance of personal responsibility in our culture--- entitlement. He provides the necessary tools to identify it and a system to deal with it. The Entitlement Cure is a useful addition to everyone’s toolbox. (Bill Yingling, former chairman and CEO, Thrifty Corp)
